Manchester United young gun Phil Jones has hailed teammate Michael Carrick.

The 30-year old midfielder has been a key contributor to the Red Devils' cause in recent weeks and his performances have not gone unnoticed by Jones who believes he does not get the praise he deserves.

"He's terrific, I don't think everybody realises what he does for the team," Jones told the club's official website.

"He's a super footballer and a great lad. He's massively under-rated.

"Other people may not notice what he does but when you're playing alongside him, you can't help but be impressed.

"He seems to have this sixth sense - he knows where to be, where the ball's going to be.

"He's always in the right place at the right time to either receive the ball or break up an attack.

"He has a great range of passing, too, and, as we saw at QPR, he has goals in him as well."
